The Whangdoodle of Democracy mourns thus over Iowa: "There was too big a crop of wheat and too much corn, ah, and too much schools, uh, and too few grasahoppers, ah, and that was what was the matter with we una." The "Rebel Brigadiers" played a bold hand, but they were a little premature. They went to lording it over the country before they were called oi to take charge of affairs. The loyal sentiment of the Nation was aroused in time. Exchnngc: One state is Republican, the other Democratic; one .votes nine months school, the other three months. When the eastern people seek western homes they pass over Democratic Mis souri to settle in Republican Kansas. The San Francisco Chronicle (Ind.) estimates that the next Congress after March 4, 1831, will stund: "Senate Republicans, SO; Democrats, SCj lade pendents, 1. Republican majority over all, 2. House Republicans, 157 ; Dem ocrats, 134." In the Ohio legislature the DamocraU had a majority of 15 in the senate and 27 in the house, or 42 on joint ballot. The Republicans now have a majority in both branches. The magnitude of the Repub lican victory in that state is shown by this surprising revolution. Haskell in Ohio. During the re cent campaign in Ohio, congressman Haskell, of Kansas, earned a great repu tation as an orator. He made a scries of speeches which attracted universal at tention, and created great enthusiasm among the people who listened to him. The discontent in Ireland to-day is ul. most as great as it was nearly 400 years ago, when Queen Elizabeth sent the Earl of Essex over with 20,000 troops to force the people into submission to English rule. From that day down Ireland has been the home of discontent. Mr. Nasby hits the average Democrat ic feeling in his last letter from Confed crit Cross Roads. He says: "The sines uv tho times is agin us. Dimoorisy hcz been thro a great deel since I nave been a ornament to that or ganization, but it wuz never in such a cussed condition ez now." Hon. D. C. Haskell addressed a large and enthusiastic audience at Olathc Mon day night Hundreds were turned away, not being able to obtain standing room. Many prominent Grcenbiickcrs were seen in the audiene3 who so far forgot their political faith as to join frequently and heartily in applauding. The speak cr set Johnson county down for at least two hundred Republican majority. France is an example of -what school penny banks can accomplish.

Colonel Forney, in his last Frogress, Bays : "I have it from a very high quar ter that General Grant feels deeply the solemnity of the experiment of a third term, and also the highest respect for those citizens who recall and regret some of tho errors ot his former administra tion. He is too genuine a patriot not to watch with conscientious care both these considerations. Thousands who insist that a third term means Ca-sarism, do not understand and never did understand Grant, and most of them were f-mpathi-zcrs with the rebellion, they never could understand Uie American people." Elder Mitchell delivered his old speech at Hews' hall in this city last Ionday night. It is a good speech. It was a good speech last year a better speech then than now. It had a better applica tion last year. The future was dark and uncertain, while now all is sure, stead fast and stable. Good times have come and they have come to stay. The busi ness boom is abreast with tlie times, and good crops, prosperity and the certain defeat of all opposition to the Republi can nartr makes evcrvbodv hannv. Mr. Mitchell knows tho Greeuback party is dead; that there is no demand for jere miads about hard tunes, ana that the people have no use for his kiting infla tion nonsense.

The mot to of some seems to be "any- ti.iag to Ix-at .lone-!."

That's all there is of the light on Jone, so far as we arc able to ascertain. We published a state ment some days ago, upon authority of Mr. Jones, that he did not seek the Green back nomination, as claimed by some, and that he refused the use of his name in that convention. This Mr. T. T. White denied, and affirmed that Mr. Jones did fieek the nomination at the hands of the Greenback 'convention. There eeems to be a wide difference of opinion on this matter. There are wit ness to the fact that Mr. Jones refused the use of his name to a committee of the Greeuback convention which waited iiixin him to ascertain if he would be a Candida tc or rather witnesses that mem bers of the committee so publicly stated on different occasions. We do not be lieve, as is charged by some of Mr. Jones' enemies, that he Eought a nomin ation from both parties. Mr. Jones is a man of the strictest honor, and one which the voters of Lyon county can trust. THE' OPI'OSItToN IN LYON COUNTY. The Republican ticket entire ought to be elected by good majorities in this county. There 13 only one danger to be apprehended, and that comes from the apparent apathy of the Republicans. There being nothing more than county officers to elect the interest is not as Krciit as it ought to be. While this is the case among Republicans, special ef forts are being made by the Democrats and Greenbackers to elect one or two of the gentlemen on the Democratic Greenback ticket. They do not expect to elect all their ticket They are aided to some extent by a few sore-headed Republicans, from motives of person al spite. There is no complaint that the gentlemen on the Republican ticket were not properly and honestly nomi nated, that we have heard of, or that they are not men of worth and good qualifications, for the offices for which they have been placed before the people by the largest convention ever assembled in the county. A few gentlemen have taken it into their heads that if they can not run the party for their own advant age, they will do all they can to defeat it, and are aiding the Democrat-Green-backers all they can. This is about the status of the opposition in Lyoa county Republicans should particularly rcmenv her those gentlemen who went into the convention, and being-defeated, are now engaged in the fight on the convention. We cannot think of a single reason why the Republican ticket should not be supported entire by every Republican this year. The election of a single can didate on the Democratic-Greenback ticket will be hailed over the county and state as a Democratic victory, and while some of the gentlemen on that ticket are good men, they are no better than those on the Republican ticket As a whole 'the Democratic-Greenback ticket is not as good an one as that nomi nated by the Republicans. Republicans should not allow any amount of special pleading, personal appeal and gratifica tion of personal spite to turn them aside from their plain duty, but should sup port the ticket and give it the usual Re publican majority. DESCRIPTION OF A POLITICAL SAM. Don Piatt made a republican speech at Worthington, Ohio, just before the late election, in which he gave the fol lowing description of a noted greenback politician of that state. It fits others of the same ilk, and by reading it they can see themselves as others see them : The trouble with Samuel Fenton Cary is that his very existence is a casualty, lie never was designed for .any known purpose, and of consequence appears among us as a very unnecccssary man. I was requested at Columbus to answer a speech that he has been making for fifty years. Laughter. Sometimes it is thrown out in favor of temperance, sometimes in behalf of the late war, sometimes in support of a morous inul ticaulus, sometimes in favor of a monu ment to somebody, sometimes for one thing and sometimes for another; but it is always the same agonizing howl, and always paid for. 1 respect fully declined, for that speech cannot be answered. I might a3 well be asked to reply to a steam whistle, a Chinese gong, or a bad smell. Loud laughter and cries of "That's soil I think Samuel Fenton Cary might be used to swell a procession, to act as a fire alarm or a fog horn, but he always reminds me of a story told by the late Sidney Smith, who said that a farmer could always tell tho number of the coming litter by counting the teats provided by a kind nature for the approaching family of swine. The witty Sidney said that there was generally a teat for each pig. But sometimes, through an eccentricity of nature, one pig more appeared than had been proved for. In this case the poor little piggy went fighting from teat to teat driven off by the lawtul posses sor, until driven by hunger and despera tion, it would at lust seize on the caudal appendage of the indifferent mother, and then suck and squeal and queal and suck until exhausted nature found relief in death. In this way Samuel Fenton Cary has come into this cruel world without design, and of course without provision, and he has gone lighting for a toat from party to party, until at last he has fastened' on tho tail end of the old Democratic swine, and there he squeals anil sucks and sucks and squeals until Divine Providence shall remove him to another and better world. MUST GO. One of yesterday's telegrams was to the effect that the leading men of Colora do had decided that the Indians must leave that state or be exterminated. The make up of the average citizen of the Centennial state is such as to convince all that he generally means just what he says on such a matter as this. The In dian is a nuisance under all circum stances, and history will be but repeat ing itself ever since the settlement of this country, if the civilization which is now marching over all parts of Colorado demands that the "noble red man" shall take a back seat. He could undoubted ly stay if he would behave himself, and make himself of some use. But this he will hardly do. There is no doubt that if the people of Colorado ever make up their minds to clear their rapidly de veloping state of Indians it will be done, the sentimental tendencies of the de partment having charge of the Indians to the contrary notwithstanding. The spirit of enterprise which levels moun. tains, builds railroads and cities in the very clouds, and creates in a decade millions of wealth will not be fooled with by a lot of roving vagabonds. The people of Colorado want safe homes for themselves and families. They will conquor such safety if they cannot get it otherwise, and the determination tele graphed by the leading men is a notice to all concerned to get ready for bush ness. The people of Kansas are direct ly interested in the matter, and our neighbors will receive the sympathy of our people in their efforts to better their condition in this important matter.

OVER THE STATE. Sabetha is to have a $2,000 Catholic church. A Kansas Slate fair next year at Bis marck Grove is talked of. A stone mason at Topeka has had sev en children sick with diptheria. The Peabody Gazette was right. The Marion Center Record does bolt. It is stated that the Greenback ticket in Miami county has been withdrawn. Prof. O. S. Fowler, the veteran phre nologist, will lecture in Kansas this win ter. Rev. Dr. Beatty has assumed the pas torate of the Episcopal curch at Law. rence. One hundred and fifty buildings have been put up in McPherson within the past four months. Atchison proposes to have a fine boule vard for driving, two miles long and 60 feet wide, at a cost of $4,043.55. Topeka claims a larger population than Lawrence or Atchison and now pro poses to get away with Leavenworth in a few years. The growth of Newton is still the won der of the whole country. New build ings start as if by magic, and. in every portion of the town the work of building up and beautifying tho city is going on to the satisfaction of property owners. Newton Republican. One of the principal objections urged by the Democrats against the Republi can candidate for sheriff in Miami coun ty is that he wears a "Roman nose." What, must the Roman noses go, too ? If so, we feel sorry for D. R. Anthony. The Kansas Pacific has bought the bridge at Lawrence originally built by the Leavenworth, Lawrence & Galveston rrilroad company. This is understood to mean that the Kansas Pacific people haye bought the Carbondale road from Lawrence to Carbondale on the Santa Fe which has lain unused for years.

We think, had we been a citizen, we would have hung for "Euperpe" with the mental reservation to fall back on "Priapus." KANSAS ODD FELLOWS. Some Interesting Statistics. The grand lodge of Odd Fellows of this state held its annual session in To peka last week. From the lengthy and ablo report of the grand secretary, Bur- dette, as published in the Common wealth, we glean the following interest ing information. After stating the lodge receipts, as given by the "grand master, he says: The expenses for the same period, ex clusive of 6ick and funeral benefits, amounted to $24,270.20 a decrease of $1.140.64 notwithstandinz an increse of six lodges and 518 members, which must be taken as a healthy sign, and, let us hope, in part attributable to the frequent presentation ot tue subject ot economy of lodge management and yet there is much room for improvement as sixteen lodges report their expenses in excess of their receipts, four of which number were in the same condition last year. Last year tho expense per member was $4.70, and the amount of sick and funer al benefit paid was $1.20 per head. Dur ing the past year the expense was $4.10, and the funeral benefit was $1.53, quite an encouraging change. In 1876 the lodge expenses were 61 per cent, of receipts; in 1877, C3 percent; in 1878, 08 per cent.; in 187H, 03 per cent The number of weeks' sickness for which benefits have been paid is 1,078, 30 J weeks sickness in each 100 mem bers per annum, and as the average lodge membership is thirty-nine it proves that the number of weeks sickness would be twelve to each lodge per annum. He then goes on to give statistics and thinks that the time has come to get at what amount can be paid for sickness for a given amount paid in, and that this should be as explicit as are life statistics by life insurance companies. The conclusion arrived at is that a week's sick benefits should not exceed half the amount of a years' dues. In other words, if the dues are $5 a year a lodge can not safely pay over $2.50 per week in case of sickness. The total assets of subordinate lodges, which consists of "funds," "securities," "furniture," "paraphernalia" and "real estate," are $79,481.53. The widows and orphan's fund is re ported at $44,070.57 an increase of $4, 093.90. The "regular relief" paid during the year amounts to $9,333.14, the"irregular relief" to $2,639.83. Total relief, $11, 976.07. The receipts of the grand lodge the last year have been $7,111.45; disburse ments, $3,833,68. Balance on hand, $3, 277.77. The amount needed to "be raised the next year, to meet the disbursements of the same time, $296.73. The total amount sent by the Odd Fellows of Kansas to the yellow fever sufferers was $1,136.10. GENERAL SHERMAN ON KANSAS. On the return trip of the. Presidential party from its Kansas visit. General Sherman addressed a multitude at the Illinois state fair at Springfield. Here is his reference to Kansas : "When out on the plains where the Indians and buffalo roamed, and the elk and the antelope found a home, it ap peared to us that it would be proper for us to say words of cheer to the brave soldiers and to the men who went to that land and made fields of corn and wheat and made the earth to blossom. To them we felt willing to say words of good cneer ana worus oi praise, Because they had made those prairies to blossom as a rose. You in Illinois found when yon were born a country partially culti, vated, and you have gone on doing what your fathers did, and I hope you will go on to the end of time. Cheers.1 But you dont hold a candle to those fellows out there in Kansas. Laughter and cheers. Whenever you get too much crowded in this staid I want the President to tell you that there is plenty of "room in Kansas for 2,000,000 or 8,000,000 more. We found 1,000,000 of braTe and hardy people out there, and not a single man, woman or child complaining. Every one swears that he is living in the very be6t county in the very best state in the union, and that he has the best farm in the county. Laughter and cheersj There is not a discontented soul in Kansas. Laughter and cheers. They had plenty of corn bread to eat and plenty of beef, and all of them worked hard." THE MISSTNG AERONAUTS. Probably Ferlshed In JjxUe Michigan or Georgian Bay. Chicago 'l imes. St. Loyis, Oct. 10. The members of the searching party which went up liito Macoupin and Sangamon bottoms to hunt for Wise aud Burr, the aeronauts, came straggling back oa different trains to-day and n-night They agree in their conclusions, however, and those are that the balloon did not come down this side of the Springfield line. It sailed over the vicinity of Girard, at an altitude of one mile. 1 he timber on Sugar creek, was thoroughly searched, it being the only forest between Girard and Sprinar rield where the men could remain, if killed, for any length of time without be ing discovered. Macoupin county is thickly settled in all parts, timber land as well as prairie, and it is hardly possi ble that the men could be in any part of the county for a week without being dis covered. Such a thing might happen, but it is not at all probable. The county is nearly all prairie. There are many immense corn-lields, and if the men were lost in the country it is much more likely they came down in a field than iu the woods. At this season of the year the farmers are cutting their corn, and it the men were lost in the fields it is reasonable to suppose they would have leen discovered. The result of this expedition has only added to the interest manifested in the fate of the voyagers, and the balloon is more talked about in St. Louis than the fair, which is saying a great deal. The fact that circulars have been found at Girard, and again at Illiopolis, and that none have been dis covered between these points, is strong evidence that the men were in the bal loon at the time it passed over these places. They could tell by lights from the houses when they were passing over or near a town, and it was only when they observed these lights that they threw out circulars, well knowing that they would be picked up by the people next morning; but if scattered over the farms, they would probably not be seen. By reference to a map it will be seen that Alton, Bunker Hill, Girard and Illiopo lis are all on a direct line northeast from St. Louis, the exact course which the wind was blowing on the night of the ascension. It can scarcely be doubted that the balloon passed in safety as far as Illiopolis. The country beyond Springfield to the north, as Is well known, is generally open prairie and thickly settled. 1 1 ad the balloon come down in that section it is quite certain the fact would by this time have become known whether the men were killed or not in coming down to the earth. If the balloon kept on in a direct north east course it reached Lake Michigan at a point not far from Chicago. The wind at 11 o'clock on Sunday night was blowing almost directly north over Lake Michigan, and if the balloon ever reached the lake there was no hel p but to keep on over the water for a distance of at least two hundred and fifty miles. If the passage was made in safety, the balloon was carried into Canada, but it the gas was exhausted on the trip, the balloon came down in the lake. There is no other conclusion. The belief that the balloon may have started over Lake Michigan is strengthened by the fact Uiat the object of the aeronauts was not to descend, but to go as far as possible. When Prof. Wise left St. Louis he ex pected to get in a current that would carry him directly eastward, but in this he was mistaken so far as definite infor mation of his course has been obtained. The currents of the air some distance above the earth are frequently quite dif ferent from those on the surface, and it may be that the professor was high enough to reach a current which boie him off to the east after passing north of Springfield. A telegram, from La Porte, Indiana, stated that a balloon was seen Sassing over there at an early hour on louday morning last, going in a north east direction. If this was the Pathfind er, and a landing was not effected in Michigan, the balloon must have reached Lake Huron at Saginaw, as the wind in the vicinity of Laporte was exactly in that direction, and the course woulcfhave borne the balloon diagonally across Lake Huron and Georgian bay at their greatest widths. Whichever course the balloon took after passing north of Springfield, an immense field oi water would haye to be traversed if a landing was not effected in the United States. It is quite certain that the balloon was not carrying gas enough to convey it the full length of Lake Michigan, or across Lake Huron and Georgian bay. The conclu sion is therefore reached that the aero nauts met their fate either in Lake Mich igan or Lake Huron, most probably in the former. These tneories are based upon facts, and are supported by the re ports of the signal service for Sunday night and Monday morning. The veloc ity of the wind was about the same over the section of country between St. Louis and Chicago. The balloon was travel ing at the rate of thirty miles per hour. The distance between St. Louis and Chi cago, "air line," is about 250 miles. If a different current was readied after passing north of Springfield it may have been one not so rapid as prevailed over Lake Michigan, and the report of the balloon passing over La Porte on Mon day morning early may be correct. TELEGRAPHIC. Yellow Fever. Memphis, Oct. 18. The total number of new cases reported for the week were 59; whites, 42; colored, 17; to date, 1,490. Total deaths from yellow fever for the week, 31 ; to date, 4o5. Grand Kansas Fair. Lawrexce, Kans., Oct 18. -The pre. liminary arrangements have "been inaug urated for the holding of a grand semi national agricultural and industrial fair next year at Bismarck Grove, on the Kansas Pacific railway, near this city. The beautiful grove is to be improved by the expenditure of $10,000 or $15,000. A hotel and other buildings will be erected, and premiums amounting to $2o,000 will be arranged. Lawrence is already alive in the matter, and will afford the man agement of the enterprise all possible as sistance. The premiums offered will be such as to bring out the greatest display of agricultural and industrial products ever known in the west. The Beaultful Snow. Vienna, Oct 18. The severe snow storms yesterday extended thronghout Gnllecia, Russia and the Alpine regions. There was also snow at Marseilles, and a sharp frost in the department of the Grande. Fine Architecture. Coixmbus, O., Oct. 18. The new bridge over Big Walnut creek, for the Sunday creek valley railroad, about ten miles from this city, fell last evaning with a terrible crash a distance of 40 feet into the water. Eight workmen were on the bridge at the time and their escape from death is miraculous. Four of the men were slightly injured. A defective trestle caused the accident. The Georgia Outlaws. Atousta, Ga., Oct. 18. A special from Sparta state that the accounts of the out laws in the eastern portion of Baldwin county, arc greatly exaggerated. The trouble is that political outlaws burned the gin and cotton houses and fodder shocks of Mr. Robinson for the purpose of drawing him from his house to shoot him. They killed a negro man for reporting them to the grand Jury, burned a tannery and a barn of Luke Robinson, and whipped a colored woman and her daughter in Hancock county. The gang have taken refuge in the swamps of the Oconie. The grand jury of Hancock county is now in session, and have investi gatea the outrages and are determined to bring the perpetrators to justice. The people of Hancock county are indignant at the outrages and deter mined to protect white and black from further outrage, and inflict summaryjus tice on the perpetrators. Judge Patley, the presiding judge, will vindicate the majesty of the law throughout his cir cuit More Specie. New Yobk, Oct 18. The steamer Oder from Europe, brought $475,000 in specie. Wichita Heard From. . Wichita, Kan., Oct 18. A very large and enthusiastic Republican ratification meeting was held here last night over the result in Ohio. With bonfires burn ing, powder and enthusiastic speeches, the time till midnight was employed. Wild Hog, Old Crow and other Chey, ennc Indian prisoners released at Law. rence, arrived here last night They were met by a large delegation of Chey. enne's and their squaws, just in from the agency after supplies. Great was the rejoicing among the sons and daugh. ters of the plains, after the long separa tion. Between 30 and 40 Cheyenne and Arrapphoes are here, enroute to a school in Pennsylvania. Editors in Tronl1 Madisos, Ind., Oct. IS. Wm. How ard, Jex-citj- treausurer, who was shot in an altercation with Major Simpson editor of the Star,. Thursday night, died' at 3 o'clock this morning. Simpson who was out on bail, was re-arrested-also John L. McFeteridge, local editor of the Star, who is implicated in the aflair. A Probable Strike. St. Loci3, Oct 20. Several "hundred coal miners, of Belleville, Illinois, dis trict, held a mass meeting at a Frenca village about eight miles from here this morning, and gave their relation w ith the mine owners a fpretty free discus sion. No formal action was taken, hut the indications are that at an adjourned meeting this afternoon, a strike will be determined upon and formally an nounced. St. Louis, Oct 20. At tha afternoon meeting several propositions were dis cussed and voted down, and finally two resolutions that all miners in the district numbering some fifteen hundred, should' strike for three rem wr l.nA,. date; and that is the w'ay the matter now siauus. - ah miners- lodges in the district were represented. The Coal Exchange held a meeting here to-day and reafiirni ed their action on Friday last, that they would not yield to the "demands of the miners. The Balloon Pathfinder. Chicago, October 20. Superintendent Wilson has just received a dispatch from Lake, Indiana, as follows: A package of papers was found on the beach here this morning, thrown out of the balloon Pathfinder. " Drought in Pennsylvania. PoTTsviLLE, Penn.. Oct. 20. The slight rain which fell Saturday has had little effect on the water supply, and the continued drought is seriously felt. At Collieries, Turkey Run, Pine Force and lower Kausch creek the collieries have suspended for want or water. The Kohi noor collieries have been supplied with water hauled from the Mahand Plane, and the members of the collieries in the Mahanoy Valley are supplied with wa ter brought by rail from Gordon; water trains running all day for this purpose. At Shenandoah halt the town is virtually without water, being limited to one hour's supply in the morning and one at night The Vtc War. Camp ox White River,' four miles north of agency, Colorado, Oct. 20. This afternoon Gen. Merritt and command re turned to this point, orders from Wash ington being to suspend operations against the Utes and await orders at White or Bear river, as negotiations for peace are in progress, it being under stood that the hostiles have agreed to surrender the warriors engaged in the re cent depredations. It is probable that the combined com mands of Merritt and Gilbert will re main for the present at this point, al though nothing definite is known as to future movements. In the event of peace being established it is altogether proba ble that a permanent military post will be constructed either at Bear river or the agency. Floods in Spain. London, Oct. 20. A dispatch from Paris says the total damage by the recent floods in Spain is estimated at 00,000,000 francs. Three thousand five hundred houses and 120 mills were destroyed. King Alfonso his subscribed 5,000 for the relief of the sufferers, and Princess Austurias 5,000 piasters. The bank of Spain has collected 60,000 francs for the same purpose. Indians Hast Go. Washington, October 19. Inspector W. J. Pollock telegraphs to the Com missioner of Indian affairs, at Denver, Colorado, that the Governor and leading citizens here unanimously affirm that the Indians must be removed from the state or be exterminated by the state, if not by federal forces. Confidence, they say, can never be restored, and it is only a question whether the result be attained at once or by slow and tedious warfare. It is more than likely that there will be a lively tustle between the War and Interior Departments before the question ns to what course shall be pursued to wards the recently belligerent Utes is determined upon. Gen. Sherman wishes to have the United States troops follow up tho Indians and capture them, to be punished according to law. The Inte rior Department, on the other hand, is very 6trongly inclined to have the troops withdrawn and the whole matter settled on the humanity basis. Neither depart ment seems willing to abandon its posi tion, and the whole subject will go to the President and Cabinet upon its re assembling. The chances, however, seem to be on the side of the Interior Department. Omaha Extension. St. Louis, Oct. 20.

Los Pinos, Col., Oct. 17. A runner has just arrived from the Southern Ute Agency with a letter from Page to Stan ley, dated the 14th inst, with the infor mation that another all day council was held by the chiefs of the Southern Los Pinos. All are united, and desirous of peace, and request that a runner be seat out bearing the assurance already given. Twenty-four chiefs were present. The Indians of this agency arc all encamped around our house. Not one report in fifty has a particle of truth, aud the facts are exaggerated bej-ond reason. The wo men and children are safe but probably will not be given up until after matters are arranged by the peace commission, which is expected here in a week from Washington.

A Sil ver City, New Mexico, letter savs of the slaughter on the 18th: Arriving at the scene of the tragedy, we found sixteen persons dead. We buried them. Five others are known to have been killed. We have not found any Indians. It i3 reported they have gone to the moun tains. About 150 Apache scouts, with Col. Morrow's command, in New Mexi co, have returned to Arizona, their term of enlistment having expired. They re fused to re enlist This probably gave rise to the rumor that the Indian ecouts had deserted and joined the enemy. Col. Morrow gays he has troops enough to whip Victoria, but that it will take two months to do it ne needs a couple of light howitzers. Volunteers are being raised at Mesillia. A company of Las Cruces infantry, numbering thirty, were j, UUK jiunureu inuians, only one man escaping. Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers. V St. Joseph, Oct 21.
